ReadytoRetail – A Retail Management Solution
The Situation Today
SAP for Retail implementation has always been a challenge, considering the various sizes of retailer organizations and their areas of specialty. One size doesn't fit all and therefore the need for a very specialized implementation service for retail micro-verticals. HCL has developed ReadytoRetail, a pre-configured template, to meet an individual retail company’s need while leveraging SAP's best practices and HCL’s domain expertise/experience of working with multiple small, medium and large retailers across the globe. While more retail micro-verticals are being brought under this template - apparel, footwear, food and grocery are some that are currently available.
How HCL Can Help
ReadytoRetail leverages HCL’s best-of-breed solution frameworks and IPs to bring in the best practices in services, applications and hardware, and delivers the mySAP implementation in your organization in a shorter time and with the minimum risk. ReadytoRetail contains the following retail management solutions:
Loyalty Management– "Connect": This is one of the many domain IPs that we have built over time. It is a framework which can be easily integrated with the SAP Retail solution to provide the full advantage of a complete end-to-end retail solution from the customer loyalty management perspective.
Wireless Framework: Retailers today are deploying technology to become faster, more efficient and more accurate - deriving tremendous business value from such initiatives. HCL’s wireless framework gives retailers and manufacturers access to a mobile order taking system (Quick Service Restaurant), mobile stock taking system (physical inventory in warehouse) or a full-fledged mobile Point of Sale application.
Analytics+: HCL is developing a micro-vertical specific, configurable KPI-driven analytics dashboard which will not only do sophisticated analysis and drill-down but also simulate various scenarios and initiate action from the dashboard itself. HCL is developing this solution by integrating SAP BI and BO capabilities.
Data Archival Framework: Historical data is crucial for retailers but often is a nightmare to manage. Volume grows exponentially over the years into multi terabytes and system performance gets slower. Without a proper data archival framework and strategy, business can run into multiple risks. HCL’s ROI driven data archival framework delivers a well-defined strategy which justifies the investment in it.
